    Default Kamaka gold or white label differences?

    Besides the label are there any body or bracing differences between the concerts gold or white? The sopranos?

    Thanks Jerryc41. Kamaka site is helpful on dating but says nothing about structural differences.

    Maybe someone who has/had both gold and white labels?

    Any opinion on sound differences would probably need same strings on both but any input would be interesting.

    Any noticeable sustain differences?

    If someone could get either gold or white label in same condition and $ would a coin flip be as good as anything else for choosing?

    I'm glad you started the thread. I've wondered about this too, so I can't answer your question, but hope that someone can.

    mmStan’s inbox is full. Might be the # of people wanting his Kamaka knowledge.
